Who's Quidax?

At Quidax, our vision is to create a world where sending money and value around the globe is as easy as sending a text message, so we've made it our mission to make it easy for businesses and individuals to experience crypto. Not just trading (even though, we are great at that) but the whole nine yards, all of the financial products that's built and could be built on top of crypto. We are building products that would change the way people live and relate with money. We've built one of the most impactful crypto startups and we are looking to do more to bring the world of crypto to the homes and hearts of our customers. We believe very strongly that crypto is the future of money and we believe we have an important part to play in building products that helps our customers experience that future today. It's absolutely exciting to wake up every day to work on that future.

On the other hand, we look to give you the opportunity to grow, do the most impactful work of your life and have a swell time doing it.

About the role 

We have a spot open for a Product Director, this kind of reminds us of Dr Strange, where he does that thing with the lighting shield thingy, sees millions of possibilities into the future and decides the best course of action for humanity now, haha. All we are saying is that we are looking for someone who has the ability to control a lot of things going on at the same time, so we have a number of products and we would love for someone to come on board and own the products like their babies. Someone who is passionate about the crypto, customers and realises that behind the product and numbers are actual people - customers who move and breathe. We want someone who is sold out to the idea of bringing joy to our customer’s minds, hearts and fingers anytime they interact with our product. This is the core of the role; managing a product or suites of products from inception to delivery & maintenance to make sure the customer has a remarkable experience at the end of the day. Our product organization is still a baby growing up, and we are looking for someone who has very high intellect and has had experience building out a product team from the ground up and shaping up a product to be world-class. 

This is a role for someone who has 7+ years of experience in product working on a large scale consumer product/service (B2C). The ideal candidate should have led a product team, have knowledge working with Jira, Trello for task management Mixpanel, Google, Hotjar for analytics. For the role, the prospect of driving the vision for the product organization and the product in crypto should excite you, on the other hand you should fired up by the thought of getting your hands dirty and getting down in the trenches to build the systems and processes. 

We always and strongly encourage candidates from all backgrounds and identities to apply. With each new hire, we look to diversify, strengthen our team and be more purposeful about building our culture. On the other hand, we look to give you the opportunity to grow, do the most impactful work of your life tackling problems that matter while being happy doing it.
